Technics sl 1210 MK2 does not start

Hi. I opened my mk2 to be able to fix the "groundcable" which was teared out.  There i saw that the whole ground gum was full of some kind of dried fluid. Probably bear. I fixed the cable, closed the mk2 again and turned it on. It worked.  Then i changed the speed from 45 to 33 rpm and noticed the the 33 switch was stuck. I turned off the start stop switch. Since it is not working any more.
Please help me!
Thx Sven

Your switch probably went bad. Does it not respond at all? Does the button at least 'bounce' back when you press it? If not, then you might have messed something up when putting it back together.

I have a Poulan 2750 Farm Hand 2.8 ci saw with 20" bar. Been a great saw but this last winter all the oil leaked out of the oil tank and made a real mess. What does it take to fix that and is it...

Quite honestly the cheap solution to the problem is to either empty the tank before you store it, or put it on top of an oil pan.
If it isn't the cap that's leaking, your looking at a heck of a lot of work. The tank is integrated into the frame. If you want to replace it, you'll be tearing the whole saw apart.

Mending a tear in a poly tarp

Some holes in a poly tarp are able to be fixed easily while there will be other tears that might be grounds for tossing the tarp. For most small tears you can fix them yourself using some tarp repair tape and vinyl repair cement.

Before beginning gather up all your tools, a damp towel, a dry towel, utility knife or scissors, a role of tarp repair tape, a small jar of vinyl repair cement and a hair dryer.

You will want to find a clean place to lay out the tarp somewhere where there won't be any wind blowing your tarp around. If you do have to fix the tarp outside use weights or rocks to hold the sides down.

Find the hole or weak spot on the tarp and if there is any fraying use your scissors or utility knife to cut off the frays. If there are any bumps you will want to cut them out too.

After cutting off the frays you need to clean the area around the hole. The reason you need to clean it is because dust and dirt can make it difficult for the tape to stick. All you need is a little water and dish soap on a damp towel. Rub the solution onto the tarp at least six inches all the way around the rip, you can clean farther to be safe, but six inches should be enough.

Wipe off the soapy solution with fresh water and wipe dry the area with a clean dry towel. Repeat this cleaning for both sides of the tarp.

To close the tear, place your tarp repair tape over the hole and extend it out at least four inches on to the undamaged area. First cover the tear horizontally overlapping if you need more than one piece of tape. Once the tear is covered completely horizontally overlap the tape with a layer of tape vertically covering the hole and extending four inches on either side. Repeat for other side of the hole.

It is important that after you tape up the hole you need to let the tape sit for ten minutes to make sure that it has bonded properly. When you come back after ten minutes open your jar or vinyl repair cement and apply a generous amount of cement over the whole taped up area. To dry the cement grab your hair dryer and blow hot air on the cement until it is dry.

And there you have it a fixed tarp, granted not all holes can be fixed this way. But after its been fixed you can use it again like new.

Hi i dropped my cell in a bucket could u assist me also i put in the hair dryer to dry the phone once after that i also turned the cell on as i was not aware of wat to do further and suddenly it started to...

hi there!

sorry to hear that =( dont turn on a phone right after it gets wet. it will be grounded. you have to blow dry it enough (turn on, turn off the blower, dont let it heat up much, just let air blowing it) or let it sit in front of an electric fan. if you know how to open it up, get the housing (casing) of the phone, get the battery, simcard let them all dry for half a day. (better if you can bring it to your local technician since they have tools to use to open up the whole phone and let dry its inside). but yeah, the best suggestion would be to take it to a local shop so they can check if its already grounded and dead or if they can still make use of its chip and all.

Printer is printing light

Most likely you have low in reserves. Check the ink levels for the printer in the printer settings menu. if ink is low, there is your problem.
If you know your ink is full, how long have you had those cartridges in the printer. if the ink is more than a few months old, then it is most likely drying up. this could mean the whole cartridge is shot, or that the print head is gummed up with dry ink. try running the print head cleaning tool in the printer settings.

Fuel is OK. Wiring seems OK. Spark is OK. Piston is OK. Yet engine won't start. This is an old model and when we got it, it alwyas battled to start. It was serviced by an agent and worked for a very short...

When I have a problem starting a chainsaw, lawnmower etc what I do is;
  • Remove the spark plug
  • Pour about 5ml (one teaspoon) of fuel into the opening where the spark plug was.
  • Dip the spark end of the plug in fuel so the spark gap is wet
  • Replace the spark plug and try to start it again.
The fuel that you poured into the plug opening should ignite and may start the saw. If not try repeating it 2 to 3 times. Don't be tempted to use more than the 5 ml of fuel as you'll flood the saw. Assuming that there's nothing mechanically wrong with the saw this should get it running.

You probably know this but when you're leaving the saw up run it dry so there's no fuel left in the carburettor as this can cause gum to form in the jets which stops the fuel getting through. Most people run the engine dry when leaving it away at the end of the season but if you're having difficulty starting the saw I'd run it dry every time.

How do you use the KitchenAid SNFGA Pasta Maker Attachment

If it's gumming up, the dough is too wet and needs to be dried out more by adding flour. The right consistency dough is such that if you tear off a small piece and then tear it in half and squeeze it back together with your fingers it should stick back together but not stay stuck to your fingers. If it stays stuck to your fingers it's too wet and needs more flour. If it is crumbly, it's too dry and needs more water.

Bissell Proheat 2x. The pump wont prime. The water is full and the tanks are sealed. Second time we hace used it.

I had the same problem. I took the whole thing apart and cleaned all the lines, water heater, brushes, etc. After putting it together the tools sprayed great and the side sprayers but the water tank would not allow the water out. THEN I saw this. and I was finally able to figure it out. So what I found out was that the water tank gasket was damage. lol

Lens remains partially closed when turned on

This usually means something has been slightly damaged on the lens system. It probably has some kind of impact. Also if sand or water gets inside the lens system this can happen as well.
You may think that this is normal wear and tear, I do not think so. Something causes errors like this. Dust, dirt, water, sand, or some kind of impact will cause this kind of thing.
To fix this may be harder than a person realizes on the surface.
It must be determined what is causing this in the first place.
Carefully examine the whole lens system when in and when out.
